Another installment in 'M'e Journey'.... this time it's about my mum.... I'm getting somewhere in the format of how this book is going to be developed - thinking about it a great deal, away from the mac, I find for me, this is just as important a time.

When I'm writing, I have to set myself the time and space to do so. I have often berated myself for not writing in a structured way and I realised only recently that this is OK. That's my way of writing.

It's really exciting to be moving into the final stage of writing - things feel like they're coming together. A few more components to fit into place and then I can carry on writing. Am I the new Carrie Bradshaw, well the subject matter is different! (I'm only writing that as I saw SITC2 a few weeks ago!)
I had a good look in www.thestudentroom.co.uk and really love it.

Once in Calais, we found the hotel really easily - Formula 1 - not sure if any peeps have stayed here, but I won't be staying again. The room was fine, the pillows were nice and only €32 euros for me and €3 for Lucy, very good price, but no toilet or shower in the room. Little did I know that this is the 'concept' of F1 hotels and I didn't notice on booking it. They have 3 or 4 showers and 2 toilets per 8 rooms. Now, I'm not saying I'm a snob, far from it, but when a coach party descends with masses of young people, I was lucky to just nip in and use them. Not ideal and won't be doing that again. Lucky for us there was Sky, so I was able to watch the Dorothy results show and also a little bit of Worried about the Boy but soon fell asleep. We both did. We were bushed.
Pet passport check-in was a doddle and really pleased with that (defo do that again), so was booking into Euro tunnel, but there was a half hour delay - but all in all very smooth just waiting in the car - drive on, wait for 35 mins and then disembark. Welcome to Folkestone. We had to go straight to get the car MOT'd in Ashford (it passed thankyougoddess) and then to DVLA in Maidstone for my tax disc (it had ran out end of Feb!) and I ended up taking Lucy in with me to the DVLA, the sun was too strong and I wasn't leaving her in the car for possibly an hour. Again, she was just soooo good. She sat waiting for me as I was at the counter, and she brought a smile to everyone's face as they entered and left. Dogs can do that, of course, babies do it too! And then we were all taxed and ready to continue home to Liverpool.
What a great feeling it was to get home. Slightly disorientating at first, the body arrives and the brain comes a bit later, but lovely weather, a cup of tea and straight back to sitting on our lovely hammock. Lucy felt at home straight away, you can tell and we were so delighted to see Will - Just lovely. Vegetarian pasties for dinner -what more can a girl ask for!!???
Now I have the task of unpacking, reorganising and finding space for things. We gave alot of our storage furniture away, like chest of drawers, wardrobes. But what I've learnt from being in france is less is more. The more you have around you, the less you use it. Anyway, I must press on and get going. The weather is beautiful here and I'm blessed to be healthy.
